Scatter Chart Examples

Scatter plot examples


Working in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software you can always make any needed charts, such as, for example, a scatter one, which is known to be one of the seven basic tools within the so called “quality control”.

The mentioned scatter chart can be also known as “scatter plot”. Other names for it are “scatter graph”, “scattergram” and “scatter diagram”. It is simply one of the types of plot diagram, also known as “mathematical diagram”. Scatter plot is different from any line graph because of using the so called “Cartesian coordinates”. The mentioned coordinates are used for displaying the values for two variables. In case the points are colour-coded, the one of the additional variables can be easily displayed. The data itself is displayed within such scatter charts as a collection of points. Each of the points has the value of one variable. Such variable determines the position on the horizontal axis as well as the value of the other variable, which determines the position on the vertical axis.

Any scatter plot can be simply used when both of the continuous variables are simply independent. If a certain parameter exists, being systematically incremented or/and decremented by the other, then it’s called as the “control parameter”. Another name for it can be an “independent variable”. It is usually plotted along the horizontal axis on the graph. The dependent or so called “measured variable” is usually plotted along the vertical axis on the scatter graph, so if there are no dependent variable exists, then another type of variable can be plotted on axis. In this case, a scatter plot will represent only the degree of correlation between two variables.

Lots of kinds of correlations can be applied within any scatter plot. These correlations are known to be mentioned between variables, having a certain confidence interval, which in statistics can be explained as a type of interval estimate of a population parameter, computed from the observed data.

For a linear correlation, the best-fit procedure is known to be called as a “linear regression”. It is guaranteed to be able to generate a correct solution in a certain finite time. There are no universal best-fit procedures which can be guaranteed for generating a correct solution for the arbitrary relationship within any scatter plot, but it is still very useful in case it’s needed to see the way how two comparable data sets agree to show the so called non-linear relationships between the variables. It is always possible to do it by simply adding a smooth line. An example of such “smooth line” can be “LOESS,” or simply “locally weighted scatter plot smoothing”, used in the regression analysis, being simply one of the non-parametric regression methods, used for combining the multiple regression models in a so called “k-nearest-neighbour-based” meta-model. It is also quite important to mention, that once some the data is represented by a mixture model of a few simple relationships, then these mentioned relationships will be visually evident as the “superimposed patterns”.

The Cartesian coordinates are widely used for displaying different values for a set of data illustrated with help of scatter chart. Such Cartesian coordinate system is a coordinate one, specifying each point uniquely in a plane by a pair of the numerical coordinates. The mentioned numerical coordinates are known to be the signed distances to the point from two perpendicular directed lines, being fixed and measured in the very same unit of length. Each of the reference lines is known to be called as a “coordinate axis” of the system. The point where two lines meet is called the “origin”. The mentioned coordinates are basically the positions of the perpendicular projections of the point on the two mentioned axes.

Everyone can use the same principle for specifying the position of any point in three-dimensional space by three different Cartesian coordinates, signing distances to the mutually perpendicular planes. Thus, n Cartesian coordinates are known to be specifying the point in a so called “n-dimensional Euclidean space” within any n dimension. The mentioned coordinates are equal to distances from the point to n mutually perpendicular hyperplanes, being very widely used for many different diagrams and charts.

Making the described chart, you will find it very useful to have the Line Graphs solution, available in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software. Having the mentioned solution will enable you making it possible to draw the great looking charts, having all the needed tools for that, such as the pre-made examples of the charts, including the scatter ones. Thus, having all the previously created templates of the scatter charts can make it much simpler for you to make your own smart looking ones, as having the professionally made graphs can enable you to edit them the way you want to see the final result and so to get it much sooner than if you started to draw your own chart from a scratch.

Scatter Chart Examples *

Example 1. Scatter chart example — Number of inhabitants of Vienna

Being of the seven basic tools of quality control, along with cause-and-effect diagram (or "fishbone", or “Ishikawa” one), check sheet, control chart, histogram, Pareto chart and run chart, the scatter one is very widely used and it can be created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software as well as other diagrams, charts, maps, flowcharts and many other schematics. Having the Line Graphs solution will simplify your work with drawing the needed graph, including the scatter one, so you can use it for your business documentation, for your site or for other reasons, such as while making presentations mentioning the data you want to explain about in a way of a diagram, a scatter one.

When thinking about data visualization, one of the first tools that comes to mind is a flowchart design. You can find flowchart symbols, shapes, stencils and icons easily on the Internet, but it might take time to systematize this information. Nevertheless, once you start flowcharting, you’ll love its simplicity and efficiency. This diagram consists from standard flowchart symbols, approved by ANSI (American National Standard Institute) for drawing flowcharts. A flowchart is a diagram that represents a step-by-step algorithm of any process, displaying the process stages as boxes that are connected with arrows. Flowchart design makes it clear and readable. Flowchart designed using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM flowchart software allows to make attractive and clear process presentation, it makes interpretation of the business process flow fresh and versatile. Great flowchart design view is a big advantage over the diagram created manually on a paper.Flowchart design

Working as a designer, you might find developing projects exciting and difficult at the same time. It is a challenging task to create a usable interior design that will fulfill all the customer’s requirements. So, in order to aid yourself, you can use special software to create site plans, landscape designs, furniture layouts. This example of an interior plan introduces an internal area of a small cafe. The floor plan demonstrates interior angle "view from above". It involves many different elements of furniture such as tables , chairs and various cushioned furniture. Also it includes a kitchen fixtures and furniture. Making this plan was managed by the ConceptDraw Cafe and Restaurant Floor Plan solution. The libraries, composing this solution contain about vector graphic 300 objects. It can be use to help interior designers to develop interior design proposals, communicate ideas and concepts that relate to a interior design.Interior Design *
